Stop Comms

I’ve had 3 BBBW’s stop being able to communicate in the past 2 weeks and I can’t figure out what the issue is. Do you have any direction on where I can go to figure what I’m doing wrong?

Thank you

It seems ALL of the boards i purchased from mouser have the eeprom programmed
to be a beaglebone green.

it may be all 6000 boards they made for mouser. I have a support email into them
and GHI. Still no response.

Robert your instructions do in fact write the eeprom as described but it does not
overwrite the string past the BBB info and it would still identify as a green
so i found your eeprom erase script. If you run that first then your script
the board identifies correctly.

Just a thought. might it be a good idea to add a few 0x00 to the end of the bbb-eeprom.dump file to make sure if its mis-programmed it wipes the green infos out ?
I am having a feeling this will be a huge mess for people who buy or have bought
bbb boards from GHI.

Sure:
